The magic of murals

A WALL at Moama Anglican Grammar School has been the scene of artistic activity for the past four weeks.

The section of the school was a hive of activity when year nine and 10 visual arts students used it for their latest mural.

The colourful mural depicts a beehive as an analogy for human relationships and serves as a focal point to brighten up the school.

Student Lilly Holden said she enjoyed creating something permanent for the school.

“Getting the shapes and the colours to look right was difficult,” she said.

“We used stencil for the bees but did the wings free hand.

“I really enjoyed the project and working across different year levels was fun.

“It was nice to get out of the classroom and do something outside.”

Head of visual arts Tara-Lee Moon said every year the visual arts classes participate in an installation component, collectively creating a work to be placed within the school or within the wider community.

“The installations change from year to year depending on the needs of the school,” she said.

“We have painted several murals, made sculptural mosaic bowls, pots and pavers for the garden and tried our hand at sculpting cement creatures.

“If you have a community project in mind that would be suited for our students please let us know as we would love to get involved”.
